July: Month of the Precious Blood of Jesus
This year, our annual July blood drive was extended to all parishes in the diocese, and it was wonderful to see how many people rose to the challenge. St Bernadette’s had the home team advantage with the highest number of donations (this being our third parish blood drive) but Sacred Heart put up some stiff competition with the second highest donations, followed by St Martin de Porres in third place. We thank you for your enthusiastic participation, which ultimately benefited the people of Port Elizabeth.
The photos below represent only a portion of the donations, as many people chose to send in just an ‘arm’ pic, while others chose to remain completely anonymous. All in all, it was a great effort and we look forward to doing it again in 2023.
Well done to all our donors, your support is much appreciated.
